Join APT's President, Kitty Vieth for the official conference kick-off as we welcome attendees and recognize the individuals and sponsors that made this conference possible. A special themed President’s Award to local Buffalo organizations will be featured.

The theme for our Opening Keynote Session is “Resilience,” a topic that our organization sees as one of the most important themes for preservationists moving forward. Buffalo’s historic infrastructure provides a much-needed base for developing cities and places who need to be resilient* to the increasing storms and weather systems that are impacting everyone.

He has also co-authored a series of four guidebooks on quiet-water canoeing and kayaking for the Appalachian Mountain Club. He is the founder of the Resilient Design Institute, which works with partners across the world to create solutions that enable buildings and communities to survive and thrive in the face of climate change, natural disasters and other disruptions. Alex is one of the leading luminaries in the world of sustainability and resilience.
